THINK YOUR CRAWFISH IS KING?

This year’s Boil will once again feature the annual BEST OF BOIL Team Competition! This on-site culinary showdown will see local crawfish cooking teams present their best recipes for taste-testing as ticket-holders and a panel of celebrity judges determine winners for the best heads and tails for 2017. Businesses or individuals may register teams of 4 or more boil buddies to cook crawfish on-site during the King Cotton Crawfish Boil. If you think YOUR crawfish is KING, put your propane cooker where your mouth is! Here are the team details…

  • Teams are required to prepare at least 150 pounds of crawfish on-site during the event. We will provide the crawfish, and you supply any add-ins and additional fixins to wow the crowd and the judges.
  • A team name should be selected, and signage for team name must be displayed throughout the entire event.
  • Each registered team will receive four complimentary event tickets. Additional team members should purchase tickets.
  • The Best of Boil Award will be given for the favorite recipe selected by event ticket holders. Ticket holders will be allowed to choose ONE 5 lb bucket from the team of their choice. However, teams are encouraged to offer additional crawfish tastings and fixings to attendees in the family-style atmosphere to allow ticket-holders to sample all teams for voting.
  • Teams are encouraged to decorate their event tents to create a themed atmosphere.
